THE FREELANCING GUIDE
I’ve been freelancing for almost 9 years now having come from a studio setting where all I had to worry about was my projects! During that 9 years I’ve made mistakes and learned a lot along the way. This series of classes will shed some light on good practises to follow as a freelancer or someone who runs their own business.
“This class gives great and simple tips on how to organise work/life as a freelancer”
BRANDING YOUR CREATIVE BUSINESS
This series of classes takes you from the very first steps of naming your business, defining your goals and target market and creating a brand mission statement. The series then explores the more visual side of branding - designing a logo, launching your business or product and marketing. These classes are perfect for anyone starting off a new business.
“This series was brilliant! Practical and helpful with clear examples. This was all I was looking for and so much more”
The Bitesized Branding series are mini classes focusing on one aspect of your brand… they are suitable for fitting into a lunch hour. Each class will make you really think about a different area of your branding from your brand personality to defining your target market.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT TYPEFACES
This class is for all those who would like to know more about how to choose the right typefaces for your design work. The typefaces you choose to use in a design or illustration will be communicating a message to the viewer and you want to make sure that message is the right one. Sometimes typography needs to be almost invisible, so much so that we take it for granted... other times we might need to read a billboard from a far or a warning sign and we want to make sure our message stands out.
We will look at how one word can take on different meanings just by the typeface you read it in.
This class is for designers, illustrators, pattern designers and animators... anyone who uses type in their work and would like to know more about choosing the right typefaces for their projects.
